PROANO

Proano expands into Saudi Arabia with NanoMist

Proano Ltd are delighted to announce their new found partnership with The Aujan Industrial Group, a huge organisation involved in a variety of industries who became interested in Proano’s hugely successful watermist, kitchen fire suppression system, NanoMist. Together, both companies aim to protect commercial and industrial buildings in a safe and efficient manner.

Headquartered in Belfast, Ireland, Proano is at the forefront of watermist technology. Proano’s LPCB certified commercial kitchen product is the first certified watermist product to protect industrial and commercial kitchens used around the world in many 5 star hotels and restaurants. NanoMist fits easily and inconspicuously in to kitchen cooker hoods to ensure your commercial kitchen is protected at all times.

NanoMist’s watermist has notable benefits over its competitors:

  • The first watermist fire suppression product to be LPCB approved
  • Safe for people and occupied areas
  • Lower water volumes resulting in minimal damage
  • Rapid clean up times preventing extended downtime
  • Low cost system reinstatement following discharge
  • Smoke damage reduced
  • Easy & cost effective to service & maintain
  • Environmentally friendly

NanoMist originally began to grow in popularity when it first entered the Middle East. Many large hotels and restaurants loved the idea of watermist as a replacement for the countless wet chemical systems that currently dominated the market. This was due to the major benefits mentioned above, along with the fact that the system was so easily installed and because many believed it to be more aesthetically pleasing.

Proano products will be available in Saudi Arabia through the Aujan Industrial Supplies branches across the country in AlKhobar, Jubail, Jeddah and Yanbu. Installation, commissioning and aftersales provided by the trained technicians of Aujan, fully competent in handling turnkey projects.

ICL

Phos-Chek ULTRA 1×3 AR-AFFF

Introducing Phos-Chek ULTRA 1×3 AR-AFFF (Alcohol-Resistant Aqueous Film Forming Foam), a new formulation demonstrating ICL Performance Products’ commitment to superior firefighting performance and environmental responsibility, meeting the most widely recognized and respected third party certifications including LASTFIRE, UL162, and EN1568, and the intent of the US EPA 2010/2015 PFOA Stewardship Program.

Phos-Chek ULTRA 1×3 AR-AFFF is used in emergency response situations, fire suppression systems, and manual applications to fight a broad range of Class B flammable liquid fires including hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline and diesel, and on polar solvent fuels such ketones and alcohols. Typical applications include storage tanks, loading racks, docks, process areas, warehouses, and as an excellent vapor suppressor for flammable liquid spills.

Phos-Chek ULTRA 1×3 AR-AFFF is a mixture of water, hydrocarbon surfactants, solvents, C6 fluorosurfactants and fluoropolymers. The product is a 1% x 3% concentrate that is intended to be proportioned at 1% for hydrocarbon fuel fires and at 3% for polar solvent fuel fires, allowing for rapid control and knockdown by producing a thin aqueous film on hydrocarbon fuels, or a polymer membrane on polar solvent fuels, that minimize vapor release. The foam blanket separates the fuel from the air, and continual draining of water from the foam blanket provides cooling at the fuel surface.

Approval certifications include:
LASTFIRE, UL 162, EN 1568-3 (Class IA) and EN 1568-4 (Class IA)
